The HTC Exodus is the world’s first phone that has been designed from the ground up to be a blockchain device. It was created to provide consumers with decentralized applications and other cryptocurrency services.
Google seems to be having trouble keeping its upcoming products under wraps until they are released. We’ve seen continuous leaks regarding the company’s next gadgets, given how quickly it’s been delivering phones over the previous year.
In this post, we’ll look at Google’s most recent device, the Pixel 6a.
The Pixel 6a has been the subject of multiple leaks in recent weeks. Let’s take a look at what we’ve learned thus far.
Google seems to be following in the footsteps of the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro. The phone features a flat back with a camera visor that runs the length of the phone. There’s no fingerprint sensor on the rear, implying that an under-display fingerprint sensor will be included.
In terms of button placement, the phone follows the standard Pixel design. The lack of a 3.5mm headphone port, on the other hand, seems to be a surprise. If this information is correct, this will be the first A-series Pixel without a headphone port.
The phone is said to sport a 6.2-inch AMOLED screen with a resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels. According to the leaked mockups, the fingerprint reader would also be located underneath the display.
Higher refresh rates seem to be a long way off at the time. After all, the 6a is meant to be a less expensive, less powerful counterpart of its current-generation brothers.
In addition to the standard 8 MP punch hole selfie camera, we anticipate to see two cameras on the back of the phone. A 12.2 MP f/1.7 wide-angle lens with dual pixel PDAF and optical image stabilisation will be the main camera. A 12 MP f/2.2 17mm ultrawide lens seems to be the secondary lens. The Sony IMX363 sensor is said to be the sensor.
However, there’s a possibility the gadget may receive some of the camera enhancements that its older siblings had, which means a 50MP main camera with Samsung’s ISOCELL GN1 sensor isn’t out of the question just yet.
Apple will now notify you if your iPhone has been hacked.
The Pixel 6a, like its older brothers, the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro, is believed to be powered by Google’s own processor, the Tensor. It’s a 2.80GHz octa-core SoC manufactured in 5nm. The GPU should be a Mali-G78 MP20 if this is the case.
However, given that this is a budget-friendly handset and that the Pixel A series phones have historically had significantly less capable SoCs than their normal lineup, a Snapdragon 875 might be used in lieu of the Tensor chip.
Surprisingly, there seem to be two versions of the smartphone, one with 6GB RAM and the other with 8GB RAM. Both models have the same internal storage space, which is limited to 128GB.
At this time, we don’t have any information about IP ratings. The battery, on the other hand, seems to have been upgraded, with a capacity of 4800 mAh and 30W rapid charging through USB-C 3.1. NFC, dual-band WiFi 6, Bluetooth 5.2 with A2DP, LE, and aptX HD are all included.
Here are some of the Pixel 6a’s rumored specs.
